Janarius Robinson received his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey Friday, but that was not the only jersey on display when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to Bay High in Panama City (Fla.)

Team J-Rob was there too, wearing shirts with the slogan, “It takes a village.”

Robinson grew up with a single mother and said making his mother proud was among his biggest goals. That’s among the reasons he is so happy to play in the Army Bowl, scheduled for Jan. 9 in San Antonio.

Robinson told USA TODAY High School Sports he has dreamed of playing in an all-star game after his high school career and he was quick to accept the invitation from game organizers.

Ranked as the No. 63 prospect in the nation and the No. 4 weak side defensive end by the 247Sports Composite, Robinson committed to Florida State more than a year ago. He said he remains committed, but also has taken unofficial visits to Florida and Alabama this fall. He also has announced an official visit to Alabama on Nov. 7.

Robinson said he wants to hear from coaches how they plan to use him and said his relationship with the head coach and more importantly, his position coach, will determine where he lands.

At 6-5 and 260 pounds, Robinson is quick enough and athletic enough to play outside linebacker if a college choses to use him there.
